What if you have a stock portfolio that’s all cash?
Well, you can do that.
The steps below are to be followed for any stock portfolio in the United States, and they’ll help you create an asset allocation that’s both cash-neutral and cash-rich, while still providing you with an ample cushion to absorb losses if the market crashes.
The first step to creating an asset-allocation is to figure out your asset allocation for each stock.
You’ll want to determine what your expected return on your portfolio is and what your desired cash flow is.
Then you’ll decide how much cash you need to put in your account for each asset.
To calculate your cash-based asset allocation, use the following formula:In the example below, we’ve set our asset allocation at $250,000 per year, with an expected return of 8.6% and an estimated cash flow of $1.0 million.
So, for this portfolio, we have an asset distribution of $500,000, or 2.3%.
That means that we’ll need $250 million in cash in order to reach our target cash allocation.
Once you have that cash, you’ll need to figure how to invest it.
As with any investment, it’s best to consult with a financial advisor to figure the best path to follow.
If you decide to invest your cash in bonds, stocks or mutual funds, it should come with a hefty commission.
To maximize your cash flow, it makes sense to create a retirement account to maximize your return, which means that you’ll have to keep your account balanced.
That means it’s important to be able to save up enough cash to cover all of your spending, even if you don’t want to use it to buy a home.
Once your asset distribution is set up, you need one more thing to keep track of.
This is the portfolio’s expected cash flow per year.
It’s important that your cash is being invested for an annual average, not just a month-to-month rate.
In our example, we’re aiming for an expected cash balance of $8,000.
That would mean that we need to invest $5,000 a month to meet our target.
The best way to calculate your expected cash to cash balance is to divide your cash distribution by the amount of cash you have in your portfolio.
For example, if your portfolio has $250 in cash and your expected annual cash balance to cash is $8 to $8.6, then your expected total cash flow to cash ratio would be 40% to 60%.
If you had $250 cash in your money, you’d have to put $4,500 in a savings account to keep up with your expected spending.
The same principle applies to bonds and stocks.
The next step to determining your asset allocations is to determine the expected cash flows of each of your stocks.
The key to this step is to take the total of the expected annual payments and the expected interest payments into account.
If the expected payments are less than the expected payment, your asset-oriented portfolio is cash-poor.
If you can’t figure out the cash-flow per year of your portfolio, you’re probably not in luck.
For this step, you have two options.
You can either use your existing portfolio or create a new one.
Creating a new portfolioThe first option is to create your own portfolio, which is essentially a new account with a lower asset allocation.
The new account is essentially an investment portfolio, so you’ll be able keep a lower cash-balance and a higher asset allocation than the portfolio you already have.
To make your new account, use our simple asset-exchange template, which you can download from this page.
Once the asset-management tools have loaded and you’ve selected your new portfolio, click the green button in the top right corner of the screen to create the new account.
Once your new accounts are created, you won’t have to worry about any fees or limits.
The only thing you’ll want is your portfolio balance.
Next, go back to the dashboard, and the asset distribution page should be updated.
You may also see the portfolio information and asset-indexes.
You’re now ready to get to the bottom of your asset management.
This is the most important step in creating a portfolio, and it’s where the bulk of your investing comes in.
Once you have your asset balances set up and the assets sorted, it’ll be time to figure your cash and spending needs.
You should then be able use a spreadsheet or computer program to calculate how much of your assets you need for each category of spending.
You will need to allocate your spending to three buckets: income, capital and spending on retirement.
The important thing to remember is that the allocation should be based on your spending priorities, not on your asset values.
For example, you may have some retirement savings but you’re spending most of your money on your investments.
In this case, you would
